Memes, Cynical, and Dish: Palestine Opens First Vegan Cafeteria Team Vegan Cafe 6 Cafe &lestaurant Ovegantakeover On the 10th October 2016, Palestine’s first ever vegan cafeteria, Sudfeh, opened its doors for the first time. Located on the campus of Al Quds (Jerusalem) University, the cafeteria is not only the first of its kind in Palestine, but also in any university in the Arabic-speaking world. It was safe to say that the team was hopeful, but more than a little nervous, about how Sudfeh might be perceived and, importantly, whether people would come and eat there. In Palestine, veganism is little-known and the animal rights movement is in its infancy so the idea of a vegan cafeteria seemed somewhat radical when the project was first mooted. But the team behind the cafeteria, which is run as a joint not-for-profit initiative by the Palestinian Animal League (PAL) and Al Quds University, need not have worried. From its first day, Sudfeh has been full of happy customers; indeed, the success of the first week saw the kitchen completely selling out of food every day and having to up the food production to ensure that hungry customers could get their fill of healthy, nutritious, cruelty-free food 🌱 In its first month, Sudfeh has provided over 1,600 vegan meals to students on campus and the feedback has been hugely positive. Initially sceptical, students soon realised that the food served in Sudfeh is not only freshly prepared by talented chef, Anan, and his team, but that the dishes on offer are familiar Palestinian cuisine which many do not realise are vegan by default. For example, hummus, foul (beans), soups, stuffed vine leaves and (of course) falafel, are delicious dishes that form a large part of the Palestinian diet and have always been vegan. Add to this traditional favourites which can be β€œveganised” very easily, such as maqluba (β€œupside-down rice”) and the Sudfeh menu enticed initially cynical students and staff and kept them coming back. 🌱 veganpalestine palestineanimalleague freepalestine israel palestine vegan vegantakeover
